GE Washing Machine #WDrr2500K3ww
« on: October 12, 2012, 02:10:00 PM »
The final Rinse/Spin cycle is not working properly.
The washer is making a loud grinding/clicking noise.
When I move the control past that part of the cycle toward the last spin and rinse it seems to work ok-spins and almost drains completely.
I am looking for a repair manual,and any advice you may have for me.
Clutch? Belt?
Thank You
Sue

That sounds to me like your support rods are sagging and the main pulley is dragging the floor.
 Run it empty and see if the machine make them same noise. SERVICE MANUAL

If I move the knob beyond the clicking/grinding noise part - toward the very end of the rinse/drain cycle, it works properly for a few seconds,stops, then repeats - as if it is shutting down, then restarting.

Anytime I go out on an appliance for a noise issue I start by locating the source. Take the front off and get down on the floor with a flashlight. Turn the machine on
and carefully look. Is it coming from the pump, the motor, the belt, the transmission? Its hard to diagnose a noise issue long distance. You will have to be our eyes and ears.Up at the top of the front panel are a couple of clips about 2 inches in on either side. Use a putty knife or a thin blade screwdriver to release them while pulling out on the panel.

I am waiting for my helper to show up to start this process.
In the meantime the washer has stopped making that clicking sound, it now does nothing, after I move setting  toward the end of the cycle-  will not spin/rinse on the small/large/super load setting  with water in the tub.
It will start and stop repeatedly.
After I empty most of the water out it will spin -not drain - only on the super load setting.
Please help.

Did you check the drain pump,  may need replaced or cleaned out.

Hi,
Thanks for all your help.
There was a sock stuck in the hose by the water pump!
The machine is working fine!
Again, Thank You for your help.
